Polish Lowland Sheepdog Breed Maintenance
The Polish Lowland Sheepdog has a shaggy, thick coat with a dense undercoat which requires regular grooming. It is important to brush out your Sheepdog’s coat at least once daily to prevent matting and to ensure the fur is kept maintained. Matting can lead to discomfort, hidden skin infections, and may give a painful experience. You should never bathe your dog when his fur is in mats as it will only tighten them up and they will become virtually impossible to remove. Ensure your pet’s coat is properly brushed out with a brush and a greyhound comb for optimum results. Bathing should only take place every 6 to 8 weeks if necessary. This breed is not hypoallergenic and is an average shedder. Because of the thick fur, debris may be trapped, causing a strong odor which may not be pleasant for the family. Every 2 to 3 weeks a nail trimming should be planned. Ears should be kept dry and will need to be cleaned weekly and the teeth brushed a couple of times per week. The Polish Lowland Sheepdog requires space to be able to move around and expend its energy. This high energy breed requires vigorous exercise in order to tire him out. A home with a large yard would be best for this breed. An active companion who has a high tolerance for the cold due to its coat, may have a low tolerance for the heat.
